Cassandre Coyer

Hello – and welcome to my website. 

I am a French native journalist who has lived and worked across the United States for six years. 

My experience working at an international news organization, at national and local newspapers, and working on different documentaries has made me a thorough and compassionate reporter passionate about telling powerful stories.

As a journalist, I could never pick a beat that I was more drawn to than others. Whether it be immigration, culture, environment, or local news, what I was mostly drawn to was the people I interviewed and their stories. By talking to a lobsterman one day and a young woman searching for her family the next, writing features allowed me to share both unique and universal experiences with readers.

I'm always interested in hearing about new opportunities, so if you'd like to work together, please get in touch at
